Charlotte (Sophie Verbeeck) and Micha (Felix Moati) have been together for four years and the relationship gives signs that it is falling into monotony. So much so that, six months ago, she has an affair with Mélodie (Anaïs Demoustier). Without distrusting something, Micha feels abandoned and, when the opportunity arises, tries something with Mélodie. Initially afraid, it does not take long for her to indulge herself. With this, Mélodie maintains cases simultaneously with both Micha and Charlotte, without one knowing of the betrayal of the other.
It should be noted that the viewing of the films will be followed by debates. All sessions have free entry.
It should be noted that the ex aequo network, through this initiative, contributes regionally to the end of invisibility and silence towards the diversity of sexual orientation and gender identity and / or expression. This ex aequo network event, which reaches many locations, is often the only event of the year that is openly spoken, and for the general public, about these realities.
